Libya council seeks to restore order in Tripoli

Libya's new civilian leaders are beginning the process of restoring order in Tripoli after the revolution, BBC reported.

A military spokesman for the National Transitional Council (NTC) said fighters would be encouraged to return home or enlist in the army.

NTC leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil has said a panel of wise men and tribal leaders will be set up to aid reconciliation.

Mr Jalil's announcement came as he returned to Libya from a summit in Paris on the country's future.

He also said the NTC would move to the capital next week from its long-held base of Benghazi.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on the world to do what it could to help Libya in its transition, while on a visit to Australia.

"We are working to make sure that the United Nations can respond quickly to requests by the Libyan authorities," he said at a news conference in Canberra.
